The National Weather Service has placed Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam and 14 other counties in north and northeast Florida under a tornado watch Sunday until 6 p.m.

There is also a chance for thunderstorms on Saturday, but severe weather is not expected.

Rainfall was expected to begin late Sunday and become heavier throughout the night, according to Joe Pollina, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Upton.

During a tornado watch, the weather service suggests that people should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.

A line of severe storms is moving towards East Texas this afternoon.

They also say it is okay to move your vehicles to higher ground.

"Starting at 8 p.m. tonight until 8 p.m. tomorrow, April 14, residents are allowed to park on the neutral ground and sidewalks, as long as vehicles do not block intersections, streetcar tracks or travel lanes".

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening for most of the southern two-thirds of Minnesota, roughly south of a line from Fergus Falls to Brainerd to Hinckley. "We could see some fallen trees from the storm".

Sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures kick off the new workweek with highs in the lower 50s on Monday to the middle 60s by Tuesday through Thursday.
